N'GOLÁ BIENNIAL

São Tomé e Príncipe

VISUAL IDENTITY /  CATALOG / WEBSITE / POSTER CAMPAIGN / MERCHANDISE 

N’GOLÁ was the eighth edition of the biennial of São Tomé e Príncipe, a tiny island country in the Gulf of Guinea, with a lively local arts scene. To revive the biennial, the organization invited an international curator; Renny Ramakers, co-founder of the Dutch design company Droog. 

N'GOLÁ was a festival-style event with over 30 artists from all over Africa, with exhibitions, performances, workshops and concerts. The aim of the biennial was to show a different perspective of African arts and culture than what we usually see in the media – and to celebrate its power and beauty. 

I assisted in curating the event and created the visual identity, with a contemporary and festive approach, based on the positive, strong, colourful art and culture presented with N’GOLÁ.
